Wakes up from coma speaking fluent Spanish

Posted by | October 22, 2016 16:51 | Filed under: Pot Luck

The Georgia teenager never spoke Spanish before.

Reuben Nsemoh, a 16-year-old goalkeeper at Brookwood High School, was kicked in the head weeks ago diving for a loose ball, his third concussion. He stopped breathing and was in a coma for three days.

When he woke up, he couldn’t speak English, but he was able to speak fluent Spanish, a language he couldn’t speak before. The teen told WSB radio in Georgia he thinks maybe he picked it up from his friends and his brother. As his ability to speak English returned, his Spanish fluency has faded out, although he still continues to speak Spanish.

“My friends would always talk to me in Spanish and would teach me,” he said.

    I think I’d prefer something like Duolingo.

    There was a woman a few years back, had a head injury and woke up speaking with an English accent.

    Funny what the brain does…I was pretty much fluent in Sicilian as a kid, can only converse a little bit now, but I have woken up from dreams that were all in that language…go figure.

    Please don’t let anyone kick you in the head so you can speak other languages.

    Just for fun though, what if someone kicks Tramp in the head and wakes up speaking Spanish: Hijo de Puta!
